THEME BY PISTACHI-O

"Ordinary fools are all right; you can talk to them, and try to help them out. But pompous fools-guys who are fools and are covering it all over and impressing people as to how wonderful they are with all this hocus pocus-THAT, I CANNOT STAND! An ordinary fool isn’t a faker; an honest fool is all right. But a dishonest fool is terrible!"
- Richard Feynman (via richardfeynman)

"The highest forms of understanding we can achieve are laughter and human compassion."
- Richard Feynman (via richardfeynman)

"Fall in love with some activity, and do it! Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn’t matter. Explore the world. Nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough. Work as hard and as much as you want to on the things you like to do the best. Don’t think about what you want to be, but what you want to do. Keep up some kind of a minimum with other things so that society doesn’t stop you from doing anything at all."
- Richard Feynman (via richardfeynman)

"What I cannot create, I do not understand."
- Richard Feynman (via richardfeynman)

"I have approximate answers and possible beliefs and different degrees of certainty about different things, but I’m not absolutely sure about anything."
- Richard Feynman (via wonderjunkieblog)

God behaves like a strange king who wanted to test the obedience of his subjects on ridiculous things, and who punished them afterward well beyond their crimes. 
If only Adam and Eve had been punished, one could strive to save the conduct of God from the reproach of malignity and injustice.
But it is claimed that the entire race of men was cursed for this mistake, and that we all carry the burden of Adam’s sin, a burden that is no less than our eternal damnation. 
- Émilie du Châtelet

 “ Recognize that the very molecules that make up your body, the atoms that construct the molecules, are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centers of high mass stars that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with the chemistry of life. So that we are all connected to each other biologically, to the earth chemically, and to the rest of the universe atomically. That’s kinda cool! That makes me smile and I actually feel quite large at the end of that. It’s not that we are better than the universe, we are part of the universe. We are in the universe and the universe is in us. ”                      ~ Neil deGrasse Tyson; (Born 54 years ago today, October 5, 1958)

"It’s worth remembering that the act of discovery does not require that you understand, either in advance or after the fact, what you’ve discovered."
- Neil deGrasse Tyson, with a reminder why the value of scientific exploration shouldn’t be measured in dollars or return on investment, but rather in how it enriches the sum of human knowledge. (via jtotheizzoe)

"The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom."
- Isaac Asimov (via expose-the-light)
